Pied-billed Grebe  Podilymbus podiceps

The Pied-billed Grebe is common across much of North America.  During the winter months, they will migrate to warmer climates.  This bird is a common and widespread winter resident in Florida, but is uncommon as a breeder.  It does breed in all parts of the state, but is strongly concentrated in the wetlands of the central peninsula.
